Are E-Vites O.k. for Rehersal Dinner?

In the mayhem of all the craziness, is it appropriate to send out e-vites for the rehersal dinner? Everyone knows anyway already where they're suppose to be. Is this wrong?

    Personally, I think it's okay - I just did it by word of mouth - I let them know when the rehearsal was, let them know there would be a dinner after and asked if they'd be able to make it - I didn't really see the point of spending more money to make more invitations at that point in the game

    We sent out real invites because I wanted everyone to have the address, time, etc on paper. I think it's up to you for what is appropriate with your family. For us, I knew an e-vite wouldn't cut it for the older relatives who aren't exactly email savvy.

    I did evites for the RD - it worked out fine for me.

    For me, receiving one would be fine. If you are not paying for the dinner and FI's parents are sticking with tradition and paying for it, I would run it by them first in case it cheapens a nicer dinner that they might be planning.

    I think it depends on the type of dinner you're having...mine was a bit more formal so i wouldn't have done evites..i prefer to get an invite in the mail....evites remind me of all you can drink bar parties.

    I ordered mine from vistaprint for like $10 or something rediculous. We have a lot of people who are not so internet saavy, and who were coming in from out of town. I wanted them to have a peice of paper w/ the info so it wouldn't be so confusing.

    I just called people.  I ended up also sending an email so everyone had the time and address for reference.  I think an evite is fine.

    I thought about doing an evite, but instead I chose to print my own.  Either way is fine.

    As pp stated it depends on the type of dinner. I think evites are ok for a non formal dinner. My mom is hosting and it is non-formal however I sent out regular printable invites that I got from Party City because I didn't know everyone's email and FI's mother does not have a computer.

    Agree with pp's- depends on the venue.  Ours is on the formal side and FMIL wants to do E-vites since she just discovered them.  We're suggesting to her her that an E-vite doesn't suit the venue.You can get printed invites pretty cheaply ($1.50 per piece or less) through Vista Print or Wedding Paper Divas.Some people (like me) appreciate a paper invitation a) because it's always nice to get mail that's not a bill and b) they might put it in their scrapbook.
